Privacy and security policy
The following outlines our privacy and security policy at Pipnotic.
What customer information does Pipnotic retain?
When signing up for any of our memberships, we retain the following information:
- What products a customer ordered and when
- Name, e-mail address, and phone number provided by the customer
- Billing (and optionally: shipping) address provided by the customer
- A note about payment method used by the customer
This information, like the rest of our website data, is stored in your website host’s database.
How does Pipnotic collect customer information and take payment at checkout?
We use a PCI Service Provider Level 1 partner for ALL financial transactions, and collect only the information listed above on the Pipnotic website. Nothing else.
Does Pipnotic retain customer credit card information?
No. By design, credit card number and security code are never stored on the Pipnotic website. The payment gateway gives this sensitive information directly to the payment processor. No credit card data enters or passes through the Pipnotic website’s database or file system. We leave this up to Stripe to meet the burdensome and expensive security standards required for storing customers’ credit card numbers.
Does Pipnotic use an SSL certificate?
Yes. All communication sent between visitors’ browsers and the Pipnotic website is sent via an encrypted tunnel using the SSL protocol. For additional information about SSL/HTTPS, please visit the following: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTPS
Is the Pipnotic site PCI-compliant?
We do not store any credit card information on our severs, so we don’t have to be.
Is the Pipnotic site GDPR-compliant?
Yes. The GDPR is a European privacy regulation. It ensures the careful processing of personal data by businesses and organizations. For instance, you must have a good reason to process personal data. And you are not allowed to gather and use more data than is absolutely necessary. These rules apply across the EU/EEA. GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation, but in the Netherlands, the GDPR is referred to as the AVG or Algemene Verordening Gegevensbescherming. The GDPR came into force on 25 May 2018. The GDPR is a set of rules that helps to better protect everybody’s right to privacy. The GDPR forces entrepreneurs to handle personal data carefully, whether they be the data of clients, personnel or others. Businesses must be able to prove they abide by the GDPR.
